Racial Disparities in Mental Health: A Data-Driven Learning Guide (ICPSR 201)

Principal Investigator(s):


Data-Driven Learning Guides are a collection of instructional exercises that can be used to enhance teaching of core concepts in the social sciences. This learning guide investigates racial disparities in mental health, particularly differences in reports of depression between African American and White adults. Research questions that can be explored using this learning guide include how race is related to self-rated mental health, seeking treatment for mental health disorders, and differences in health insurance coverage, and to what extent differences in mental health by race can be explained by differences in income, education, marital status, and experiences of discrimination.
